July ..the season of Wild raspberries!

As I walked towards the end of the trail close to my house, I spotted light green prickly bushes with an abundance of what looked like orange buds. I went closer to get a better look. They were not buds of flowers but tiny wild raspberries slowly ripening. My kids and Colleen's kids had a great time last year picking and eating the ripe raspberries from these bushes. In a week's time, the fruit will be ripe .. almost black in color with a burst of sweetness. Can't wait to take the kids there again..

Look at all the ripe wide raspberries I picked on my morning walk today. My three year old son ate them all in one sitting.
